Hundreds of University of Tennessee students spent their Saturday learning about how to become better leaders in the community while giving back.
These leadership training sessions were part of the Martin Luther Kin Junior Day of Service and the Clifton M. Jones Student Leadership Conference.
Five hundred students attended the sessions this morning and then performed community service during the afternoon.
The volunteers did everything from painting walls, planting trees to visiting community nursing homes. They helped groups like the Beardsley Farms, Second Harvest Food Bank, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Habitat for Humanity.
